Except for emergencies, Kea treats all conditions.  Kea works with individuals in all stages of life, and especially with anyone in transition.  She treats all life phases: from the small child, to the midlife crisis, to the dying process – from vibrant health to severe illness.  


Kea provides individually handcrafted holistic care.  She provides a unique blend of intelligence, love, and no-nonsense practicality.  She is 110% dedicated, and her approach is custom-made to each of her clients. 

To further assist the healing process, Kea also has other “tools in her tool belt.”  These include:

  • Moxa – “heat therapy” – warms, nurtures and tonifies
  • Custom-blended, mostly-organic botanical tinctures
  • Clinical nutrition (food as medicine)
  • Cupping & guasha
  • Craniosacral therapy
  • Personalized lifestyle recommendations
